A new report synthesizes results from a vast amount of research in modeling sea surface temperature, identifying gaps in knowledge and recommending future research avenues.
NOAA’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program competitively funded 12 new three-year projects totaling $4.0 million in grants and $1.4 million in other awards to support 30 researchers, postdocs, and students at 16 institutions.
A study funded in part by the CPO’s CVP program used foraminifera preserved in radiocarbon-dated salt-marsh sediment to produce new sea level index points for a region between Georgia and Florida.
CPO-funded research examined the role of wind data for prediction of the Madden-Julian Oscillation.
NOAA's Climate Program Office released its FY15 Annual Report on March 11, 2016. The report gives an overview of CPO's achievements in FY15 and highlights the great work done by the Office's Divisions and Programs to advance scientific understanding of climate and improve society's ability to plan and respond to a changing climate.
Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
